Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- In Big Lunch, Pete decides to make a sandwich. Of course, the more he adds, the bigger it becomes. This is a good thing because he is really, really hungry. He forgets to remove the wrappers and adds cans, jars, and boxes to the ever-teetering tower of items. As he piles on the food, children's giggles will grow right along with the expanding "sandwich." Once it becomes too big for the small cat to consume, he must think of a clever solution to his dilemma, which he does with a little help from his friends. In Play Ball!, Pete is baseball ready and his team, the Rocks, are facing the Rolls in a big game. The players warm up and, when the game is over, both sides greet one another with high fives. Even though Pete does not play his best game, he has a good attitude about making mistakes and not being sad about errors he made. This is a great title to spark a discussion about sportsmanship. In both books, simple cartoon art in bold colors and large text make the books a treat for beginning readers.-Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TNα(c) Copyright 2013.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was a pretty dissapointing story line.
By Lindsay A. on July 9, 2021
This book is just ok. I got it because my son is obsessed with baseball and loves pete the cat... This book is not for kids who love sports though. It does cover the basics of the game, but only through the fact that the entire story is about the main character "doing his best" the whole time and not doing all that great... at all. Meanwhile the author keeps saying "it's ok he did his best." Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that an "A for effort" kind of mentality is bad, but this book doesn't really teach kids to really strive at being good at sports or anything. I didnt know what to expect with this one and I guess I'm not surprised but it just doesnt reach my standards. I dont think my son will be an all star baseball player or anything, but both my husband and I were avid in sports all throughout our youth and and want to implement the same love of always pushing ourselves to do better with our kids. I will probably re-buy the book and do it up as a sequel, reprinting different words and pasting a new storyline where pete the cat comes back and has practiced and gotten better. Really dissatisfied with the storyline and wanted to let anyone else out there know what the book is actually about before buying. My kid still loves this book, but my husband and I aren't crazy about this one. I might have been ok with it if pete the cat even had one line saying "Pete the cat wants to practice and get better, so next time (maybe) he can hit a home run!" ...but it didnt have anything like that at all. It was a big let down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pete needs to practice more.
By Kimberly on May 24, 2021
Pete the cat sucks at baseball. Maybe the next book should be Pete tries harder. Lol good book for us to teach our boys not to be too upset but there will be no "Pete" the cats in my house. Also. There was food or something on the front of the book (gross) and the pages were all bent and creased. It had to have been a return. Was definitely not new.
